Although we will hold our Annual Members Meeting ‘in person’ this year at the DoubleTree Conference Center, the SARS-CoV-2 and the COVID-19 disease will still be with us. We recommend members take precautions to protect their health and the health of their families.
In order to enable full participation in the election process, regardless of attendance, we have decided to mail ballots out with the Annual Meeting Notice. All members may vote by mail by returning their completed ballot. Members who wish to vote at the Annual Meeting MUST bring their ballot with them.
Our accounting firm, Eide Bailly LLC, has agreed to receive and tally the mailed ballots and those cast at the Annual Meeting. Having an independent firm receive and count the ballots will give members assurance of election accuracy.
For 2022, Golden Growers members will elect the following Directors: 3-Year Term for Central District (Currently held by Brett Johnson); 3-year Term for At-Large Director (Currently held by Matthew Hasbargen); 2-Year Term for North District (vacant); 1-year Term for Central District (vacant); and 1-Year Term for At-Large Director.
In addition, members will vote on a proposal to Amend the Bylaws.
